Home Medication Reviews

With a referral from your GP, our accredited Pharmacists can assist you to manage your medicines by providing a Home Medication Review.

Our Pharmacists will visit you at home to discuss your medications, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins and supplements. They can assist to:

  • Highlight any concerns you have with your medications, including suspected adverse effects or inadequate response to current therapy
  • Provide advice regarding safe storage of medications, including checking for expired medications
  • Ensure that medications are taken in the most effective way, including timing of doses and use of devices like inhalers, injections and blood glucose meters
  • Answer any of your questions about medications, including brand changes and how they work for your medical conditions
  • Provide recommendations that will assist your GP to develop a Medication Management Plan with you

Once the Home Medication Review (HMR) is conducted, our Pharmacists will then send a detailed report to your GP.

Would I benefit from a HMR?

You would particularly benefit from a HMR if you:

  • Take greater than 5 regular medications
  • Have recently been discharged from hospital with medication changes
  • Have concerns about your medications
  • Are taking medications that require close monitoring

How do I organise a HMR?

A HMR can only be conducted with a referral from your GP. The HMR can be completed by an Accredited Pharmacist of your choice.
